Seeing red

We don't usually go overboard on Valentines Day around here, but it's always a great excuse to have some good chocolate and a glass of champagne (really, like I need an excuse).  Yesterday I made a batch of Snickerdoodles and put red sprinkles on top just for fun. And since they may not last the weekend when my son comes home for a visit, I might make some cupcakes today.

The mini quilt was inspired from here, although I wasn't in the mood for cutting tiny 1.25 inch pieces of fabric, so I went with 2.5 instead and just made one block with corner triangles for a finish of 17.5 inches square.  All the organizing and cutting of my scraps is giving me lots of little squares to play with, and it looks as though they will come in handy when I want to whip up a quick project like this.

The book got some great reviews, and I thought it would fit right into the Valentines Day theme.
Hope you all have a great weekend!  Eat chocolate.  The end.


  1. Lovely little quilt! I've read both the Silver Linings Playbook" and "The Rosie Project"- great reads, but I don't think they were written by the same author?

    1. Fixed that! Thank You :) I guess it's time for my annual eye exam.

  2. Very sweet little holiday quilt! Looks like a fun time and I'm with you on that chocolate for sure.:)

  3. This is really sweet, and lovely when something can be whipped up reasonably quickly too. I have a die for 2 1/2 inch squares so this would be really quick to make. x

  4. I have an on going love for 2 1/2 inch squares. Any smaller is just plain silly :) Love your mini!! Happy Valentine's Day!!

  5. Lovely quilt! I need to read that book as I have heard great things about it. Happy Valentine's Day.

  6. I love the pretty little red blanket! I mean, L.O.V.E. Those four squares with the roses and cream background (with polka dots?) are my favorite, but I always love toille too. Did I spell that right? Who cares. You know what I mean! Happy Valentines Day!♥

  7. Your quilt is lovely. I did enjoy reading the book! Happy quilting and greetings from Vienna!


You guys are awesome! Thank you for the comments!
